Ruth Glentworth, a volunteer from charity Headstart, helps Vera Scott learn to use a headscarf and hair fringe to mask hair loss at Manchester's Christie Hospital.

The charity recently won a national 'demonstrating excellence' award to expand its work.

It teaches women who have lost their hair for any reason effective ways of wearing scarfs, snoods, hats and hair fringes and gives tips for 'regaining' eyebrows.
